Tractor mounted log splitter

Awhile back my brother found an old tractor mounted log splitter. It was sitting in a guys yard and had not been used in a very long time. After some wheeling and dealing, the log splitter was bought for the farm. The hoses were dry rotted and had to be replaced. The fluid was drained and replaced.

I have used gasoline powered log splitters, and they fail in comparison of a tractor mounted splitter. Rather than a small gas powered engine, the splitter uses the engine of the tractor. The only thing this splitter had a problem with was hickory.

The pump is supposed to have a bracket that prevents it from spinning on the power take off (PTO). So a chain was rigged up with a pin and a couple of bolts.
